A BBA in Digital Media Management prepares graduates to work in many areas including entertainment, social media, digital marketing and the web. For example, you could become a social media manager for a band or record label, an analyst for Facebook™, a business developer for Bazaarvoice™ or a web marketing analyst for a more traditional company.
To deepen their knowledge and increase employment opportunities, many graduates pursue a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA).
